Judge Priest


Published 1934


Judge Priest depicting life in Kentucky after the Civil War and Reconstruction Period.
It still shows the stereotypes and prejudices which existed at that time in a somewhat humorous manner.
Based on a story by the noted Kentucky humorist, Irvin S. Cobb, it presents life as one would have imagined it at that time period.

Subject: Good Movie
This was a surprisingly good movie for me. Not a "fan" of the "confederate revisionist" movement. Traitors pure and simple in my view but I digress. Was GREAT to see Will Rogers, though his homilies were at a minimum. His folksey persona takes center stage here. The courtroom scenes were by far the best. The travails with the spittoon are priceless. Stepin Fetchit was..... Stepin Fetchit. The irony of seeing the black servants sing "My Old Kentucky Home" (pre-amended), with the line "The sun shines bright in the old Kentucky home
'tis summer, the darkies are gay" and marching/playing/strutting to "Dixie" at the closing was almost too much for me. Great little movie.

A charming post-civil war period piece.

Makes me wish I could find myself in a belle dress the size of a house with a hat just as big, fan in hand deep in the "Old South" having a Mint Julep with the Judge on the veranda amongst the weeping Willows and Spanish Moss.

I found the items/people in the background as intriguing if not more so than what what was happening in the foreground. Love the old clothes and other accouterments. Really just enchanting and a must watch for a civil war/restoration fan.

One of the best films I've seen in years. I wish I'd known about this movie before.
Will Rogers as Judge Priest could not have been better.
